Day of Rejoicing

Christ is risen! Христос воскресе! Today's feast, commonly known as the Day of Rejoicing or Радоница ("Radonitsa"), was established as a day to commemorate the dead in the hope of their future resurrection and for Orthodox Christians to visit their loved ones in the cemeteries and proclaim to them the good news of the Resurrection of Christ. More on the feast can be found here.
